Victoria mad if very clear many times that she has no interest in ever returning to Dallas, so I don’t see that happening. Not too many choices as to who is expendable other that Anne or Pamela.

I can’t even imagine who it might be. I love all the characters on this wonderful show. A Ewing is a major character in this cast. Bobby and Sue Ellen are the pillars from the original, so I can’t see it being them. Christopher and John Ross are the pillars from the new version, so they’re out, in my mind. Then the boys’ lady-loves, Pamela and Elena just seem too diverse to be out. Could it be Ann? I hope not; she’s the “stable” one, the matriarch-type. The rest aren’t Ewings, so I’m stumped. And I hope that if they… Read more »

What??? It’s over already— boy I was just getting into it again– when a show doesn’t have that many episodes to begin with they shouldn’t bother with the split season. I wished they had just aired the whole thing all at once— I had to wait months for it to come back and they had like five or six episodes and now it’s over— that was just silly. As to what Ewing will die— I personally think Christopher has outlived his usefulness as a character—hate to say that, but it’s true, this season Christopher really didn’t have much to do—the… Read more »

This mystery stumps me as well. There are three characters that I think could go – but each has a reason not to. Anne overall seems to most expendable and would certainly open up story for Bobby – but come on, how manny times does Bobby have to lose a wife? And really, Anne is the link to the Rylands – without her, the Ewings and Rylands wold have little reason to interact, and any interaction would be lacking the emotional heft without Anne in the picture. Then we have Christopher. Yes, we think of him a a pillar of… Read more »

The only two characters who lift cleanly out of the storylines are Sue Ellen and Elena (once Joaquin/Nicholas is gone). But Linda Gray is so wonderful and popular, they aren’t going to kill her off. And obviously (too obviously) the whole reason for the icky holes-in-Elena’s-diaphragm and then sex with John Ross was to have her fall pregnant next season, so she’s not going anywhere. Sadly, I think that means it has to be Ann, as Bobby and Christopher won’t be going anywhere. It’s a mistake, in my opinion, as Brenda Strong is a lovely and warm actress. And Ann… Read more »

I certainly hope it is not Ann. She and Bobby are the most sane ones in the mix. I certainly would hate to see her go. And imagine Bobby’s guilt after their last go around. I’m thinking it may be Pamela. Last week she said she’s in this marriage for the long haul and plans to make JR’s life miserable.

I love this show and am really concerned that we won’t see a season four. It’s ratings don’t look so hot… [sniff]

The new Dallas is very good. The ratings should be outstanding! I agree with Mary; the season is too short.
I would love for Victoria to return to Dallas, also. The old Dallas made her a star.
I would hate for any Ewing to be killed; however, whatever, will add more fire to the show ; let it rip!

Emma is my bet if they can somehow consider her a Ewing, would keep the feud alive with Harris. Anne would be too repetitive for all of Bobby’s wives ending up dead. This would be a repeat of the way April died

I say it’s Nicholas. He could turn out to be JR’s son. Everything is pointing to Ann but that’s to obvious. I do hope there’s a season 4! I didn’t think it was fair to Dallas to split the season up.

If Ann is murdered that would be the same thing that happened to his wife April. In my opinion that was a bad story line and I hope they don’t repeat it.

Maybe they are going to kill of Ray Krebbs, Gary or Lucy Ewing? They have had bit parts on the reboot but nobody would really miss them. I love the show and hope there is a season 4!

Dallas is a great show. Sue Ellen is my favorite. I think it’s going to be Christopher who dies.

I think it will be Christopher or Ann who dies. Although I wish it would be Elena or Emma who dies. Can’t stand either one of them. Dallas is a great show. Want john Ross and Pamela to find their way back to each other. They belong together. They are the super couple of this version of dallas

I can’t wait until Monday night!! Even since JR has died, I am really enjoying the new twists and turns with the next generation.
I am intrigued by the thought of a Ewing dead…. I will be glued to my TV waiting to see what happens….. I hope they do not cancel the show, its my favorite!!!

I believe it will be Ann..if Bobby has to chose 1 hostage in Mexico, he would chose Ann but she would insist that he save Emma, and she stays back…If not , it will be Christopher, for he seems to have been phasing out, no real need for him, and his acting stinks, the jesse metcafe that i know should be that suave guy on Desperate Housewives, equivalent to John Ross on Dallas, So it will be Ann-most likely, or Christopher, or Sue Ellen,,,,,they all had useless story lines this season…they are seen to be phasing out, and bobby can… Read more »

Why did they kill off Christopher? He was a good person. And very sweet. He will be missed.

just finished watching the Dallas season finale. I am angry that Christopher Washington killed off. It will take a lot away from the show because bobby is getting older and if he has to leave Christopher and John Ross would be perfect rivals. If Christopher is really dead I will stop watching this show.

The Ewing who dies is Christopher in the car explosion. I really liked Jesse Metcalfe and hate to see him go.

My favorite story lines in the show were the rivalry and, at times solidarity, between Christopher and John Ross, and the love saga of Christopher and Elena. I began watching the show because of Jesse Metcalf. The show no longer holds any appeal for me now. Why kill off any of the main characters at this point? Especially with the potential for a love triangle/feud with Elena’s pregnancy. These are the things that hold your female viewers’ interests. Poor choice. The obvious and heartbreaking choice would have been Anne, though I think killing off any of the Ewings was a… Read more »

ABC and PEOPLE’s ‘The Story of Soaps’: What Was Your Review Of It?

Tuesday’s night airing of ABC and PEOPLE’s two-hour special The Story of Soaps featured many notable daytime and primetime soap stars, past and present, clips from backstage to classic memorable moments, and some participants who were providing commentary on the erosion of the daytime soaps in our culture.  Still others, maintained and realized that everything today is serialized from the news we watch, to some of Netflix’s most binge-watchable series, and of course, the birth of reality-programming.

Throughout the airing of the special, The Story of Soaps was trending on Twitter and social media either at the #2, #3 or #4 spots for the entire duration of the broadcast presentation, and the cancelled and beloved All My Children was also at one point trending.

However, known soap writers, journalists, ardent fans, and actors of the genre, were all on Twitter last night live-tweeting their thoughts as the special went down, and there was definitely mixed reactions and reviews, when all was said and done.

What the special did not shy away from, but tackled, was Luke’s rape of Laura at the campus disco on General Hospital. and how that moment now, as Genie Francis (Laura), so eloquently put, would be considered as ‘date rape’ in our culture.  The series even included a pivotal moment where Laura addresses Luke (Tony Geary) about the rape years later, after helping Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) through her rape ordeal.

John Stamos (Ex-Blackie Parrish, GH) got a bevy of “Right On’s!” for his comment that the soaps do not get the credit that they deserve and clearly came through as one of the soaps greatest supporters, as did former The Doctors and Knots Landing star, Alec Baldwin.

However, throughout the two-hours, Andy Cohen’s commentary was thread throughout; mostly citing soap’s demise and the creation of reality-programming and his “Real Housewives” franchise, that the special touted as the new soap operas.  It continued on the narrative that people preferred to see real-life drama then made-up drama on a fictional soap.  And while, that has been a trend in American culture for decades, the commentary came off as often out of place in a celebration of the soaps; and bringing in a lot of negativity to the special that soap fans were tired of hearing.

In a lighting rod moment, Cohen stated: “I know Susan Lucci doesn’t agree with me, but I think that the Housewives have replaced soap operas because truth is stranger than fiction. Soaps became kind of unnecessary because you could do it with real people, and they’re writing the drama themselves.”

The special did also address the cancellations of All My Children and One Life to Live, (which many were not sure they were going to do – given this special was airing on ABC), where One Life’s leading lady and six-time Daytime Emmy winner, Erika Slezak (Ex-Viki) said what we all wanted to sa ywhen the ax fell on the towns of Llanview and Pine Valley, “People were horrified”.

Clearly, OJ Simpson and his murder trial and reality-programming were also given a chunk of time to show where the once mighty landscape of daytime soaps which once had 13 shows on the air, dwindled town to 4.  But, it would have been nice to see more time spent on how in this day and age, the people in this current landscape of the genre work so hard to get episodes done at an unbelievable pace, and how in that climate the performers still deliver gut-wrenching performances.

Former Loving, OLTL and Breaking Bad star, Bryan Cranston, did point out how the once powerful soaps, just don’t have the dollars they used to, and need to, to help with production costs and their taping schedule.

Viewers were reminded of soaps’ socially relevant storylines including hankie-inducing moments from: Robin (Kimberly McCullough) and Stone’s (Michael Sutton) HIV/AIDS storyline on General Hospital, to Billy Douglas being a gay teen coming out on One Life to Live, played by a young Ryan Phillippe.

There also did not seem time spent on the contributions of William J. Bell; one of the most prominent writers of the soap genre of all-time.

For many commenting on social media last night, there seemed to be a feeling of some glaring omissions of participants who could speak on this genre, who have been in the trenches as soap producers, soap writers, pundits, actors, and more, who were not included in the special.

So, what was your review of The Story of Soaps? How would you grade it? Do you feel it accurately reflected the history of the genre?  Were you happily surprised,  or when it came to the end where you over it, or somewhere in between? Sound off in the comment section below.  Below are some tweets from notables who have worked as an actor, a writer, and a journalist in the soaps.
